Dull Finish on Countertops

My condo is less than 3 years old. I moved in when it was brand new. I'm a very careful person and always use cooling racks on my arborite (matte finish) counter tops. An area about 8 - 10 inches on the "island" is very dull. I've tried vinegar-water; Mr.Clean, and a few other cleaners to bring up the colour but no luck! Does anyone know of a product (homemade or otherwise) that might help. It's a beigy mottled effect pattern. Thanks for a very helpful Newsletter.

You could contact the manufacturer about this situation.

Once you remedy this, try using those glass thick counter top savers (www.bedbath&beyond.com) to keep the spot from becoming worse or developing new areas.

I buy "Nu Finish" once a year car polish at the Dollar Store. Wipe it on the countertops with a damp cloth, let dry, wipe off with a soft cloth. Just sit back and enjoy the sparkle!

Try ORANGE GLO ...I use it on everything....spray on and buff away the oil until it shines like crazy!
